Continuing our annual tradition of screening a silent classic, with piano accompaniment by Andrew Youdell of the National Film Theatre. We meet in St Nicolas’ Church, Market Place, Abingdon.
The Doll is the comedic story of the Baron of Chanterelle’s determination to find a suitable wife for his shy nephew Lancelot, in order to continue the family line. Lancelot finds himself enthusiastically pursued by all the eligible local village girls. Eventually Hilarius, a local doll maker, is called upon to assist but, through a series of events of mistaken identity, his daughter Ossi is the one that Lancelot only has eyes for.
Plus supporting programme.
